New York, I love you. We’ve been together for almost eight years. You’ve shaped me, challenged me, pushed me, and enabled me to make my dreams a reality. I’m saying goodbye for now, as I’m entering a new chapter of my life in the Southwest. But before I go, I want to take a trip down memory lane to share my journey from a small town in Kentucky to the Big Apple and also to not forget the magic that happened here.
About six weeks ago, I began my gut healing protocol as prescribed by my new functional medicine doctor at Parsley Health. Starting with the elimination diet, I cut out gluten, dairy, and refined sugars. However, I also knowingly have negative reactions to corn, soy, and eggs, so those were out as well.

Hey hello, yogi lovers! My friend and fellow lifestyle blogger, Allison (@allisonclairmurray), came to visit over the weekend, and it was just pure joy with donuts, smiles, and lattes. We put together a series of bendy, twisty, and stretchy partner yoga poses for absolutely anyone to try. Matching wardrobes are not required, but HIGHLY recommended. =)
Styled by Athleta Hi, my loves – I was browsing through Pinterest the other day, and I came across this quote: “Eat like you love yourself. Move like you love yourself. Speak like you love yourself. Act like you love yourself.” It’s such a simple sentiment, right? Yet, it can be difficult to put into action. I think of all the times I feel discouraged, unsure, or how I’m just so damn hard on myself, and how I am actually the only person standing in my way. I have nothing, but kind, supportive and loving people in my life. And yet…
